These cells are like my babies, keke
Oh hi tumblr, how have you been?
Gets SM in 1v1 arena, proceeds to die to the exact same rotation with fear 5 times in a row.. ahh, if only it wasn’t the flight map to start off, but I doubt it would’ve done much. hash tag aion ;p
I was fiddling with a few graphic settings to see how much of a visual impact they made for a certain FPS cost to someone who can’t get 60+ FPS on HQ by default. I’ll add captions, but for the sake of listing:
Top row- Sunlight effects turned on (left, 50 FPS) vs. Sunlight effects turned off (right, 55 FPS). There’s a slight glow difference that’s hard to capture due to the changing motion of the sky, but for 3-5~ more FPS, I might keep this turned off. I think it varies depending on how much “sky” you actually have on screen, but I guarantee you’ll have some any time you’re outdoors.
Middle row- High Quality Background High (left, 46 FPS) vs. High Quality Background Low (right, 51 FPS). There are two things I noticed with the change. The ground becomes less crisp and vivid, though not to the point where it looks like a giant blob of MSPaint bucket splurged all over the floor. The background (since it is a background effect) also loses the .. hm, ‘realistic’ effect in the sense of being darker and less vibrant (quickly switch back between the two images, and you’ll see). Overall, I think this would have more of an impact on recording, but I’m not sure it would make everything look too much worse for gaining 3-5~ FPS (every FPS counts!).
Bottom Row- Outline Correction High (left, 40 FPS) vs. Outline Correction Low (right, 41 FPS). I know this is supposed to be the NCSoft version of Anti-Aliasing, but I can’t tell where the impact is, so I’m posting this to see if anybody knows + state that it seems to make no difference (that 1 FPS could be from a person running in for all I know).
Actually, the purpose is to ask if anybody else has useful insights into the specifics of each individual graphic setting.. well, maybe not each, but at least the ones which have less visual impact overall but can be disabled/lowered to improve performance. I can’t change texture or shaders, of course, not only because they do visually change things- they also don’t look too great!
This is a pretty lengthy post, but I’m totally for information concerning this topic. I could make a video about this, actually, but there’s probably a dozen out there already. ;p
Aion KR just released a new event for Christmas season alluding to the gathering of Jesus (or in this case Aion’s) disciples. The event is set to split into 12 parts, each accordingly to the 12 Empyrean Lords.
But what’s more exciting here is that we’re finally seeing the art for each of the Empyrean Lords (aside from Marchutan and Kaisinel).
From left to right:
THEY’RE ALL HOTTIES OMG!
Now we should be reading up our Empyrean Lord lores again go wild with the shipping!
(the girl in the middle is “supposed” to represent Aion)
Haha, this is neat.
'Twas the night before Aion, when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a.. damnit, no pet from Aion rhymes. ;[
Can anyone else not log onto the Aion forums on FireFox? I have to use Chrome, it must be a sneaky google-NC conspiracy.
I finally used one when on the cusp of dying after I charged headfirst to lead my team to certain death.. and it felt good. ;]
Ah, how colorful images are butchered by gif’s.
From Hime’s “Halloween surprise Palace tease” earlier.
That feel when you open a double tropical Starburst pack and get two Strawberry Bananas.. or cherry + w/e, if that’s how you roll. ;p
